Before switching to the Cellnovo Diabetes Management System, Benjamin Stephenson, 19, had to set his alarm to administer an injection for the middle of the night.
Benjamin lived with a classic case of Dawn Phenomenon, an early-morning increase in blood glucose levels, which would begin at around 3 am and last until noon.

Anita Hanson is no longer a slave to time.
Over the last two years, Anita has rediscovered the joys of shutting off her alarm clock on weekends and having a leisurely lie-in.
When out with friends, she no longer keeps her eye on the clock to make mental calculations on when she’ll need to go home to administer an injection.
Life is more flexible and a little less regimented since switching from multiple daily injections to the Cellnovo Diabetes Management System.

Leigh Rickards misses nothing about having to field questions or dodge strange looks from strangers when he had to administer daily injections of insulin in public.
He learned to ignore the looks from people who mistook why he was injecting and had stock answers ready for the times he’d have to launch into explanations.
The injections proved especially delicate when he was entertaining clients as part of his job.

These days, Shiplo Zaman is a different man. Over the past year and a half, he lost 18 kg and has regained his body from his early 20s. Just last January, at 90 kg and with a BMI of 31, he was told he was clinically obese. He was also struggling with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
As a person with Type 1 diabetes, this only added to the daily challenge of managing his blood glucose levels, which at that point, were fluctuating drastically.
Feeling unwell, unhappy, and frustrated, Shiplo realised he needed to make a change – a big one.

Emma Rochester has spent her whole life being reminded of the importance of taking care of herself and managing her Type 1 diabetes.
Emma was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was five years old. Every day since then, she has had to carefully consider every choice she makes, be it in regards to food or physical activity, as it can have consequences on her overall health and wellbeing.
“I’m constantly worrying about complications,” Emma, 43 said. “People without diabetes don’t usually have to think as much about how their body is going to react to stress, anxiety, excitement, all of which can affect blood glucose levels. It would be nice to go 24 hours without having to worry about what I put in my mouth or what my body is doing. For me, staying positive can sometimes be a challenge.”
